JEWS In UNIFORM

long. I sent them to a near-by
province a few days after war be
gan and shortly after the Japs
landed at a port in the same prov
ince. They are now in enemy ter
ritory, (for the time being j ar.d I
hope to find them as soon as we
push the Japs into the sea.
“Well, Rae. I know you will un
derstand the necessity of my be- i
ing so abrupt in trying to write
this note—but there's a war going
on and we’ve got to get in the
habit of keeping our mouths shut
for a change. There is just a
chance that this letter will get
through and if it does, you might
let me know. Best regards and
love to all.”

Popular Hospital: The sick list
at Fort Tilden Hospital (Fort Til
den, L. I.) has beer, growing
alarmingly popular of late. Many
a healthy soldier has all but
knocked out his own teeth in or
der to get into one of these beds.
The secret, it turns out, lies with
the Jewish Welfare Board's Com
mittee of Juniors, a group of pret
ty girls who have not only been
chatting with the lucky young
men in the hospital wards, but
bringing them gifts, such as cig-

RECOGNIZED ABILITY
AND HONESTY
(Paid Political Adv )
Letter from Bataan: The fate of the writer
of this letter is unknown. A defender of Bataan.
Lieutenant James Kabakow wrote the following
(dated February 15) to his sister, Mrs. Rachel
Cohen of Brooklyn:
“A few simple words to let you know I seem
to be alright so far. I guess the newspapers are
giving you more details about the situation than
I can at this particular time. You see. there is
a war going on all around us. and you must un
derstand that I am unable to disclose any details.
Suffice to say. I have been successful in dodging
Jap bombs ar.d I am unscratched.
“When I «ee you, I’ll try to imitate the sound
of a falling bomb ( and other things. After this
affair is settled. I am sure I won’t regret the ex
perience. In fact, you couldn’t get me to quit what
I’m going through for a million bocks.
“There is just one thing in particular which
worries me most. And. naturally, that is to know
how my wife and little kid Joey are getting a-
arettes, candy, fruit, books
games, etc.
Last Monday, the situation
reached a climax in a complete
shattering of precedent. USO
Camp Shows, it seems were pre
senting a show at Fort Tilden.
All boys who were able to leave :
the hospital were given permis- I
sion to attend. Enthusiasm swept
the convalescents, until somebody
remembered the Committee of
Juniors. “Heck.” he said. “We 1
can’t go to the show. The girls
are coming! We can’t disappoint
them.” The boys grew paie and
raced back to their respective
beds, fevers mounting and bruises
blackening. At length, the Exec
utive Officer of the hospital, Ma
jor Weigh, had to step in and
handle things himself. The men
would go to the show, he decided,
and the girls would accompany
them. Thus, for the first time
I SO Camp Shows were attended
by a group of civilians. The boys,
whether they like it or not, are
getting better.

Four Stars in her Flag: Not
even Mrs. Maurice Jacobson of ;
Cincinnati, Ohio, looked forward
to Mother’s Day with more ex
citement than her dog. Blinky,
who has four masters in the
Army and is barking his pride to
the entire neighborhood. For
Mrs. Jacobson’s sons had promis
ed that they would be home from
camp and around the table on
May 10, and Blinky somehow got
wind of it. Blinky didn’t talk a
fcout it himself, but Mrs. Jacob
son spoke for him. ‘‘He misses
the boys so,” she explained, “but
|he doesn't have to worry. They’ll
|be home for Mother’s Day. They
: promised.”
The boys in question are Philip,
Jack, Sidney and Robert Jacob- !
son. Robert, 24, Ls stationed at
Indiantown Gap, Pa. Philip, 22,
used to work in the circulation de
partment of the Cincinnati Post.
Now he’s in the Naval Reserve.
Jack, the oldest, is 29, and is alo
a former circulation man—he was
on the Columbus Citizen. He
joined the army in March and is
stationed at Fort Sill, Oklahoma.
Sidney, 27, is a married man. He’s
at Fort Thomas, Ky.
Mrs. Jacobson, who keeps calm
by knitting khaki sweaters, has a
four-starred service flag in the
front window. “I’m proud that .
they wanted to go,” is her way of
putting it. “You can’t tell a boy
r.ot to join the army or navy—not
these days. But neither can you
help worrying about him.
“Knitting helps me to think !
quietly and reason things out. I
knitted for the First World War,
too—l7 sweaters. I was in the
hospital then and had plenty of
time.”
As Mother’s Day approached,
Blinky had no patience for any
thing like knitting sweaters. He
just kept running into the kitchen '
to look at the calendar, anxiously !
wagging his tail whenever foot
steps approached the front door.
Mrs. Jacobson was not disap
pointed on Mother’s Day. And ,
Blinky Is still barking about it. j
